Fragile Eternity - Melissa Marr

Fragile Eternity - Melissa Marr

Pages: 389
Publisher: Harper Collins
Release Date: 28th May 2009

Other Titles in the Series: Wicked Lovely, Ink Exchange (my review)

Seth never expected to settle down forever - but that was before Aislinn. Unfortunately, forever takes on a whole new meaning when your girlfriend is a faerie queen…

Aislinn never expected to rule the very creatures that had always terrified her - but that was before Keenan. He stole her mortality, and now she faces challenges and enticements beyond any she’d ever imagined.

In Melissa Marr’s third mesmerising tale of Faerie, Seth and Aislinn struggle to stay true to themselves and each other, in a world where one false step could plunge the Earth into chaos…

Once again I was blown away by Melissa Marr’s writing in her third magical tale of Faerie. I loved Fragile Eternity just as much, or maybe even more than the previous two.

I’m really glad that we got to hear from Seth this time. It was a great way to really get to know him, not just Aislinn’s view of him. The hints that he has not always been as calm and moral made me love him even more as well as making him more real. His internal struggles with keeping his cool and dealing with Aislinn’s growing bond with Keenan made my heart break for him. I really love Seth’s character, he’s one of my favourite in the whole of YA.

The changes in Niall seemed to further enhance his appeal that I discovered in Ink Exchange. He seemed to mould to his position as King of the Dark Court without losing his loyalty to and friendship with Seth which surprised me. I though that a change like that would have affected him a lot more than it did, though I’m glad that it didn’t because I really like Niall for some reason!

The world of Faerie was amazing. The beauty and the magic that Melissa Marr created was mesmerising and made a beautiful veil for the underlying danger of Faerie. I loved that nothing was as it seemed and that Sorcha could control it all simply with a thought. That was pretty cool. Okay, extremely cool! Faerie would be a fabulous, albeit very perilous, place to be.

The choices that were made by the characters in Fragile Eternity will change everything in the world that Melissa Marr has created and I hope that there will be another book in the series so I get to see the affects of these changes.
